Overview

A modern ideal of "perpetual adolescence" has brought on the current epidemic of teenage violence and related problems. "Perpetual adolescence as an emerging subculture has got to go. Children want to become adults," according to Donald M. Joy, noted Christian family counselor and conference speaker.

In this book Dr. Joy suggests ways that parents and other mentors can effectively guide young people toward competence and maturity. This book is focused on the cooperative team of parents, ministers, and other mentors of our young. The main track is for parents, but there are parallel guidelines throughout to coach and encourage others to join parents in blessing and empowering their kids. As Dr. Joy notes, "Both parenting and mentoring are rich roles for creating and blessing our coming generation of adult humans."
